Terry Gilliam - The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Finally! A new film from the genius behind Brazil, the Adventures of Baron Munchausen, 12 Monkeys, and Fear and Loathing. Tom Waits plays the devil, so this is pretty much guaranteed to be awesome. It looks fantastic(al), 'n I can't wait for it to come out in October.
from Wiki:
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus is an upcoming fantasy film directed by Terry Gilliam and written by Gilliam and Charles McKeown. The film follows the leader of a travelling theatre troupe who, having made a deal with the Devil, takes audience members through a magical mirror to explore their imaginations.

Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits, and Heath Ledger star in the film, though Ledger's death one-third of the way through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended.[1] Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger's character Tony as he travels through a dream world.

The film's world premiere was during the 62nd Cannes Film Festival, out of competition.[2] The film received a PG-13 rating for "violent images, some sensuality, language and smoking." and will receive a 12A rating in the UK for strong language and some violent scenes.

The UK release for the film was due to release on 6 June 2009 but pushed back to 16 October 2009 due to the successful premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.
